Re: rhodes Commodore swiftsure

I seem to recall hearing that Brian Acworth had passed on a few years ago. But I cannot swear that I remember that correctly. Brian lived in Huntington when I knew him and a google search showed this:

Acworth Foundation
775 Park Ave
Huntington, NY 11743
(631) 425-7624

The Acworth Foundation was established in recognition of the education that founder Brian Acworth received through the altruism of others after he was evacuated from the U.K. during the Second World War. Because of the generosity of others, Mr. Acworth was able to attend the Choate School in Connecticut for grades 9 through 12. There are many participating schools throughout the United States and England.

You might try to contact the Ackworth Foundation in Huntington and see what they can tell you.
